A well written and thorough look at the struggles faced by political opposition and protesters in Putin's Russia. The book is an engaging and engrossing overview of the social and political climate imposed by Putin and his allies. While many will be familiar with the larger events, the full picture painted once the finer details are filled in exposes a worrying state of corruption in a country on the brink of dictatorship.

Interesting and informative read, at times it was difficult to keep track of all the people. However, if you're looking to expand your knowledge on this topic, this book is a great option. ( )

Vladimir Putin has always interested me. It is amazing that a little known KGB agent could muscle and intimidate his way to Russias top office. The author does a wonderful job chronicling Putin's ruthless struggle to maintain his leadership. Enemies Beware! I won my copy of this book from Library Thing. ( )

Mr. Bennett's writes masterful prose. At once he brought Mr. Putin's character to center stage, and what a character he is. He left the KGB (after 16 years) to work in President Boris Yeltsin's administration where in 3 short years he became acting President when Boris Yeltsin resigned. Lucky man. He is very popular with the Russian people and gets reelected by wide majorities. He is the strong man whom many Russians want as a leader. Author Bennetts succintly dissects this almost robber baronesque character. On the one hand the people love him but woe betide those who do not. Those folks are interred in near gulag-like prisons, and Putin has imprisoned many people who landed on the wrong side of him. Mr. Bennetts history is vivid and pungent. ( )

This is a stunning book, really. Bennetts knows the country well, and is in contact with a great range of people. His account of modern Russia and the political woes of its many people is sensitive, passionate AND level-headed, and deeply engrossing.

I definitely had a "wait ... oh right, THIS is what journalism is SUPPOSED to be" moment (or series of moments) reading this -- because here in the U$A, one forgets: one gets so used to journalism being the realm of partisan hacks with plastic hair, fake tans and hideous voices (looking at you, Fox News) that one forgets that even in this country journalism was once a proud tradition.

If you have any interest in Russia, or what is going on in the world beyond your community, please read this. It's first rate: well-researched but not dry, current, and alive. ( )
